Tea Time at Jan's Digi Stamp Challenge


Good Morning Crafty Peeps,
It’s the third Monday in January and that means a new challenge over at…
As always the theme is Anything Goes and today I have the privilege of being able to use one of Jan’s awesome new stamp sets for January.


This set is divine! There are so many elements to choose from including pre-coloured images, sentiments and black and white images. You can mix and match to your heart’s content.
I used the pre coloured cup and single flower to create my own digital paper with the help of a graphics program. So the recipient of this card will have a truly unique card!
I teamed up the cup with the thank you sentiment and coloured it with Promarkers.
I chose the tea box with the sentiment already attached and coloured I with Promarkers too.
I added some lace and ribbon from my stash and a few little butterflies for a finishing touch.

For more inspiration check out the fantastic design team projects and remember to become a follower to be in with a chance to win $10 to spend in the store.

Jan's Digi Stamps is having a design team call.

Good Morning All,
It’s Thursday and that means a new challenge over at 
Craft Challenge.

For my Dt card I chose 
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the craft room, here I am with another Christmas card, lol. I am determined this year not to have the last minute crafting frenzy to get my cards made! 

I used the image twice for this card but made one deer smaller than the other and flipped it horizontally.
I coloured the images with Promarkers, fussy cut them, then used Pinflair silicon glue to mount them onto the backing paper to give the card dimension.
The scrummy papers are available here from Poppymoondesign – digital papers.
I love the traditional colours and woodland theme to these papers.
The sentiment was created on the PC.
For more inspiration for this challenge please check out the creations from my fellow DT members – they are all fabulously creative.
